We’ve addressed the topic of interview questions in this blog before, most recently with “Questions You’re Most Likely to be Asked During an Interview.”
However, what about the other end of the spectrum? What about questions you’re NOT likely to be asked . . . but might still be asked?
All it takes is one question to throw you off during the interview, and once you’re out of rhythm, it can be difficult to get back into it. Your margin for error when you reach this stage of the hiring process can be very slim, so that’s why it’s crucial to be as prepared as possible beforehand.

When you put “surprising” and “interesting” together, what you get are interview questions that you are probably not expecting. However, these are questions you might be asked during your next interview and for which you should absolutely be prepared:
#1—Do you think you’re a lucky person?
#2—If you could relive the last 10 years of your life, what would you change?
#3—What can you teach us?
#4—Tell us the most effective approaches for managing you?
#5—What did you care about most when you were 10 years old?
#6—Who is your hero and why?
#7—What’s the biggest misconception about you and why?
#8—What was the last thing you changed your mind about?
#9—What is your favorite website?
Have you ever been asked these questions or questions like them during a job interview?
Be sure to check out both articles for more information about these questions, including the best ways to approach them and answer them.
